Abstract

This large-scale cross-sectional investigation highlights the relationships between adiponectin levels and a number of metabolic syndrome components in a nondiabetic Korean population (N = 6634). In a multivariate logistic regression model, after adjustment for age, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance, body mass index, smoking history, C-reactive protein, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, adiponectin levels were inversely related with metabolic syndrome in men and women (P < .05). Adiponectin level was found to be a significant contributor to metabolic syndrome. Our findings suggest that adiponectin is an important biomarker even in a nondiabetic population at high risk of metabolic syndrome.
